It sounds like one or more of the files may have been corrupted somehow. Updating the drivers should have fixed it but if they don't replace the file that is corrupted, you get your problem.

Go into control panel and first check under add/remove software and uninstall the keyboard control software. That will clean out any corrupted files. Then reinstall the drivers and set it up your keys again.

I had a similar problem with a microsoft wireless keyboard. Tried all manner of fixes including updating a HID Serv DLL file, none of it worked (either mute or volume would work but not both). Eventually I stopped using the single USB connector to connect the wireless transmitter unit to the PC. Instead I connected the wireless sender unit to the PC via the Purple PS2 connector (keyboard) and via a Green USB - PS2 adapter (mouse). Don't ask me why but all the buttons started working straight away.

Hope this helps

If you want to check if the software is installed correctly and the keyboard is working fine try using the multimedia key. If you are able to use the multimedia keys for reducing and increasing the volume or mute the sound that means it is working fine.

If you are trying to configure the Favorite keys then you will have to select the buttons from the software and link it to the particular program of your choice.

Open the software application

Select the button that you want to configure

Click on the browse button to select the program of your choice to open with that button.

Replaced Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse 2000 doesn't work


I would have suggested opening up your old mouse and cleaning the right click button first.

Generally, wireless devices have a connect button that finds the frequencies of the devices. On the receiver press this button, then press the button on the bottom of your new mouse. the receivers lights will stop flashing once connected.

THE WINOWS STARTUP SHOWS ON SCREEN ON/OFF BUTTON IS BLUE


Is your keyboard also wireless? Check batteries on all wireless devices. If batteries are fine, restart your computer (hold down your power button until your computer shuts down unless you have a reset button) and then try unplugging and plugging back in your wireless receiver, then hit your connect buttons starting with your keyboard followed by your mouse.

Go to start and run then type services.msc or if using windows 7 just go to start and type services.msc in the search box. Once open find the service "Human Interface Device Access". Change it from manual to automatic and make sure that it is started.
